- A schoolwide program uses its Title allocation to upgrade the entire
educational program of the school in order to raise academic achievement
for ALL students at the school. No longer are students or teachers labeled
“Title I,” but instead all the students and all the teachers at the
school use Title I dollars to improve the school’s entire academic program.
- A schoolwide program is built upon schoolwide reform strategies rather
than separate, add-on services.
Why "Go" Schoolwide?
- For the lowest achieving students in the most impoverished schools
to meet high standards, their entire instructional program, not just
a separate Title I program, must be substantially improved.
- When an entire school is the target of change, schools serving the
most disadvantaged youth can achieve success.
